Found February 11, 2012 on Friarhood:
PLAYERS: Bud Black
TEAMS: San Diego Padres
Friarhood Radio was on location today during Padres FanFest.  An action packed three hours from the Tilted Kilt with myself, Judson Richards, and Cody Decker.  If you have never listened to FHR in the past, this week was a great time to start.  This week on the show: Tom Garfinkel - Spoke candidly on the new TV deal, dynamic pricing, and trying to compete in 2012 Bud Black - How important defense is to the success of the team, if the offense will be improved, and Aztecs basketball Josh Spence - Vegemite, his time in San Diego during 2011, and the longest homerun he has ever given up. Brad Brach - Why the San Antonio team was so special, pitching in Petco, and working fast on the mound. Brad Boxberger - Pitching in Southern California, his offseason regiment, and he gave us a scouting report on Yasmani Grandal. You can listen to the show here.

Top 5 players at each position in Padres History

To get ready for the 2012 season we’ll be looking at the top five players in Padre History at each position.  The first rule: we will only consider the players’ time with the Padres, so Mike Piazza doesn’t count because he was only here for 1 year.  The other rule: players will be considered for their primary position, so Gene Tenace is a catcher and not a first baseman....

20 Best Padres Follows on Twitter

Twitter has really become the go to outlet to get news instantly, and personally I know if I want to find out anything I find myself opening up my twitter app before anything.  The world we live in now is changing and we do not rely on established news sources as much in this instantaneous news era we live in.  We now see more and more news broken by random people or celebs/athletes...
